officers. one officer was killed and another was wounded. they heard one give up shot when the cabin burst into flame. >> it's very difficult to identify the remains of a person in a building. >> it's still not clear how the cabin caught fire while the sheriff spokesperson says it was ignited by gasoline cnn is reporting that swat teams set off area devices. yesterday as those events were unfolding the police urged the news media to stop sending tweets about the swat team actions. ironically the san bernardino asked them to stop tweeting immediately.
a bomb was detonated over night. janine de la vega is in the neighborhood with details on this ongoing investigation. janine. >> reporter: the california highway patrol has been here all night guarding over this house that you see behind me. you can see the front yard is in complete disi-- disarray. that is because last night officers found explosives inside that house. they brought them outside. put all the sandbags on top of them so no debris would fly everywhere to make sure that bomb was detonated safely. we are told the man who lives at this home made a threat to a public official. the chp assessment team out of sal castaneda has been watching him and got a search warrant on his home and when officers came here yesterday they found a
home made bomb and bomb making materials inside the property. the bomb squad dug a hole in the yard. buried the material and detonated it safely. people in the neighborhood had to evacuate. others were told to shelter in place. the chp says they believe more explosives are inside. >> it's a definite possibility and we may have to have evacuations wednesday but that won't be determined until the bomb squad comes back in the morning and starts doing a search. >> reporter: residents went back into their home around 10:00 last night but they may be evacuated again when the bomb squad returns. we're told at can this morning. the chp had already arrested everett basham yesterday morning before they found all these explosives. for making threats to a public official. we are told he's in his mid 40s and lived alone in this house. back out here live, i'm not sure if you can see because it's pretty dark, but there are
numerous surveillance cameras around his property. there is also microwave antenna and radio antennas several of them on the roof of his house. so it looks like he had a lot of surveillance here. throughout the morning we hope to speak to neighbors. we are also told a spokesman will be out here later this morning to get more details on exactly what the threat was made against that public official. reporting live from santa clara janine de la vega ktvu channel 2 news. time is 5:06. in a couple hours barry bonds is due back in a san francisco courtroom at 9:00 this morning. the home run king of baseball will be asking a federal appeals court to throw out his felony conviction for obstruction of justice. ktvu claudine wong is looking at court documents tied to today's court hearing. >> reporter: good morning, dave. we are standing in front of the james r. brown united states courthouse. this is where the hears will be held this morning.
